Merry Christmas!

I hope you had a fabulous Christmas! Our family has enjoyed spending TONS of time with our families! We're currently in Kansas City, MO, with Sam's family. We enjoyed having a "blizzard" yesterday and playing in the snow! We've gotten about 6-8 inches of snow so far! Sam was able to go sledding and snowboarding in his grandma's neighborhood! I'm so not used to this weather in Georgia!

This is our Christmas card from this year! Merry Christmas!
Can you believe that 2010 is in less than a week?! Time to make my resolution list!

Husband in charge...

I only asked Sam to watch Michael for a little bit while I got some stuff done. This is what happens when I leave my husband in charge.... Seriously??
*Sam is fully aware that I posted this to the blog...nothing was done behind the husband's back! :)

Homemade Christmas

I want to make more gifts for people this year! I love the thought of a homemade gift, so I thought I'd share some of the ideas I've come across with you!

Kelly at Kelly's Korner made these cute ornaments last simple and so cute! I might have to make some of these to go on our tree!
I love the idea of these coasters....Life in Grace has the tutorial to make these. You start with an unfinished tile from the hardware store...they're like 30 cents! I've seen these in little boutique shops for over $20. I have a feeling some of my family members and friends will be getting a homemade set of coasters this year! I think these would be cute with handprints or footprints on them...great idea for people with new babies!
I've also got a few more ideas up my sleeve, but I can't share those until after Christmas or I will spoil the surprise! I've been working a lot with the sewing machine! :)

Are you making homemade gifts for people this year? Please share your ideas! I don't have everyone crossed off of my list!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We sure did! It was a busy holiday, but so much fun! I love spending time with our families. They are so special to us! Sam and I are both blessed with such beautiful people in our lives and we are so thankful! Thank you, parents and grandparents, for helping us grow into who we are today. We hope that we can be such great parents to our little boy and to our future children!

Here's a couple of little videos to bring a smile to your face! Sam and I watch the Georgia Bulldog video every day! We cannot get enough of our little boy! We are so thankful for this miracle of life!

Side note...I don't know why these videos keep getting cut off when I put them on here, but you get the point! :)
